Is your employer thinking about opening a branch office in a new city? Perhaps the plan is to launch a targeted sales campaign in an large city and build a stronger customer base there. Instead of entering into any long-term arrangements, it makes sense to use temporary office space for at least the first few months. If you’re looking to be successful in business, then here are some of the benefits that come along with this arrangement.
Access to Typical Office Support Services
Right now the plan is to spend time in the city and determine what sort of potential for growth is present. During that time, there’s no point in hiring a receptionist or investing a lot of money in the basic services need to operate an office. What you will find is that partners like Agileoffices.ca can provide workspace that comes with all the support you need. There’s a receptionist that can answer your branded line with the company name, access to fax and copy machines, and an Internet connection you can use whenever you’re in the office. All you have to do is pay the agreed upon fees for using the space and the related services.
A Quiet Place to Work
Peace and quiet is a must for many of your basic tasks. You need quiet while you make phone calls. Having a quiet place to participate in a video or web conference is a must. Even having a place that is free of distractions while you put the finishing touches on a customized slide presentation for your next meeting is important. All those qualities will come with your co-working space.
Space to Meet With Clients
Did you know that the same provider who supplies you with a temporary office can also allow access to a rented meeting room if you need it? Depending on the layout, the conference room may be on the same floor as your temporary working space. Even if it’s on a different floor, you have plenty of room to meet with clients who would rather come to you. Best of all, those conference rooms can be outfitted with any equipment needed to make your pitch.
As any business owner knows, establishing a physical presence in a new city takes a lot of money. Much of the cost has to do with entering into a long-term lease for space, buying or renting furniture, and establishing utilities like Internet service. Until you know that having a permanent office in the city will generate a reasonable amount of revenue, keep the initial costs low with temporary office space. If the effort takes off, that’s great. Should the timing end up not being the best, the overall cost to the company will be lower.
Take a look at the options provide for temporary office space. Consider how you could use those spaces to reach new goals for sales or at least increasing name recognition for your brand. You’ll soon see why this approach is practical and cost-effective.
